What do we make of this? Have they reconciled, is she just trying to win her moms good graces, or what?
Maybe Alex is running out of money. Wonder how long it will be before she calls her mother telling her she's homeless, hungry, and desperate at another stint at rehab. How many times will DP decide to rescue Alex and pay her to get clean again? He did say he'd never give up on her, and that drug addiction is subject to relapse.

As long as Alex remains an addict, Erin won't allow contact with her children or only carefully supervised visits. I wouldn't put it past Alex to kidnap and hold one of her children ransom for drug money.

sheesh good old Howard has more names and nicknames than anyone i know. Tonys stomach tattoo says "enjoy the ride" But I used to think it said "Enjoy the Aide" which i didnt understand at all. mama tried with a gun is the nastiest tattoo ive ever seen. Alex cover page is someone holding agun retro style or whatever you call it. Paristosca is right she lives in lala land. She wouldnt survive two minutes in jail if she ever went, which is probably a fantasy in her head. Or will Dr Phil and Marty pay bikie chicks to protect princess precious puss lazy ass?
Do you think the tattoo was suppose to say, "enjoy the AIDS"?

from afar Tony's tattoo does look like it says "Enjoy the Aids" but no one in their right mind would tattoo that on their stomach. So I kept looking till I worked it out. Someone should tell Tony that from afar thats what his tatt looks like and suggest he should change it. Its a horrible tattoo and the R really does look like an "A"

Alex posted on HB's facebook "I love you baby! I told u we were made for each other :-) I love u most!
*your Turtle*".
Betcha DP is so proud he spent tens of thousands of dollars to get her off drugs...
I think DP couldn't care less if she is on or off drugs. He made millions off this train wreck family. He might care if this hurts his image though.

I wish she'd learn to spell.... "Alexandra Harrelson: You are my shaddy tree, my shot of whiskey, my safe place to fall, you Howard Bradley r mine... I love u most!"
Nice about the whiskey, too.
Too bad she doesn't spend all this time getting her act together so she could get her children back.
Its disgusting that the person she loves most is a random man she's barely known and not her THREE children.

Don't cha know Alex reads this blog. I bet she's thinking how little it took for one outsider to come and quiet everyone. I think Mary knew her because they were in Hanna's House at the same time. Mary posted on Alex's wall twice and there was no response. Doesn't look like Alex was glad to see what was portrayed as a close friend. She was in rehab 8 times and didn't show or refused (left)SIX arranged rehabs. Wow..how much has all this cost and who paid for it? I'll be bet with the exception of one DP..WE DID. I have silently enjoyed this forum and loved the "inside info". I don't think it's much fun now. It seems strange that Alex posted only once in a long time and it was about this forum and Mary appeared. Sounds like a mind game that mastermind A won.
That's a lot of rehab. Origins seems to be pretty expensive, I wonder who was paying for all of her treatments? I hate to say this but I bet she was similar to Alex 20yrs ago, so she sticks up for her. Unfortunately, she's still an addict. I feel like Alexandra will be in the same place in 20yrs if she's not dead first.

It looks almost like Erin is having a breakdown. She said Alex is not long for this world. This is the most she has said since rehab. DP offered Alex college, housing and care if she went anywhere but Florida. Erin said she insisted she wanted to come back to what Erin calls THE PIT.

Were any of you affected by this hurricane? There is a lot of devastation here although I was lucky. People have lost everything. This is a disaster area and you all are still obsessed with that idiot family? Sorry if anybody had any damage.

Some of us aren't from the areas that were affected. Where I live we just got the aftermath high winds, rain stuff like that. Nothing major that actually caused any damage. Not everybody on here is from the easy coast.

So why are you here on the board if this family bothers you so much, surely you have other things to worry about??

My town didn't get any damage but neighboring towns did. My power stayed on and since I didn't have to work I read a lot the posts on here.

Wow! Did it open up my eyes and change my opinion of Alex, Tony & Chris. I had been thinking this was a not so bright, boy-crazy girl that got caught up with the wrong guys and exploited by Dr. Phil. Boy, was I wrong. It was the exact opposite. Except for the Dr. Phil exploitation part. He really saw that situation for what it was and milked it for every last bit. He knows how to read people and he knew that girl was hopeless, he played the dumb country boy to keep the shows rolling.

oh my goodness, just read Erins page and she seems devastated, utterly devastated by Alex at the moment. It must be especially hard because she would have had so much hope when she went to rehab and sobered up. She seems to have lost all hope now. What Alex has done to herself as well as having the children is every parents worst nightmare. As Alex is also an athsmatic I cant imagine what smoking drugs must be doing to her lungs. Geez even cigarettes are a big no no for athsma sufferers. Saw some recent pics and she looks so unwell and out of it. This will end badly unfortunately and as much as I cant stand Alex and what shes put her family through, I dont want her to lose her life. For her family and her childrens sake, I hope something will make her want to get clean again. I wonder why she's never been in jail? Would that help her, jail, I mean? Ive never done drugs or been to jail so I really dont know.

AmberRed I couldn't agree with you more. My thoughts are with Erin. I admire her in so many ways. She isn't perfect, but then who is? This woman has really stepped up to the plate. And she doesn't just house, feed and love Alex's children – she pays for Little L. and dance lessons and toys and anyone with children knows the list goes on and on. She has done everything to help Alex. And Alex remains a selfish, narcissistic child. I am still baffled by the great Dr. P and his tippy-toe behavior around Alex. HE treats her like she's HIS LITTLE PRINCESS! Why? He throws the book at people for much lesser offenses than DOING DRUGS WHILE PREGNANT!
Why isn't Alex's lovey dovey darling "husband" buying her prescriptions for her? Somebody stop me – I could just go on and on!

I agree with both of you, AmberRed and ephemera. I too feel bad for Erin. She lost her mom and sister to addiction so she knows what will happen to her daughter if she keeps using. I also saw the recent pics of Alex and she doesn't look well. It's sad that she still has people who enable her. If they really cared about her they would not support her drug use and would do everything they could to help her get clean. Of course, she's surrounding herself with fellow addicts, so they're all just looking for their next fix. Howard's probably not buying her prescriptions since whatever money left over after paying all his child support goes toward his own drugs!

I can't believe that she insisted on going back to Florida when DP would have paid for her schooling, housing, etc if she went anywhere else! I'd be so mad if I were Erin. She'll be the one who will have to tell the kids that their mom is dead and help them after the fact. Sad situation all around.

2 things: one- I know Howard has a lot of kids but I doubt he pays a dime in child support! and two: where did you see recent pics of Alex? I want to see them too

Hello all. FYI, I do pop in here every oe & then.
For a while Erin was posting really trange, cryptic rambelings on either her twit account or FB about " Babies Born to Addicted Mothers". Like A LOT of them. Every day for a long time. I didn't really get it(don't know if i was the only one), but after readng what happened n here i seems like Alexandra was preggers again ( someone said he "Lost the Baby". Don't know if the baby died, she had a miscariage or what. But after reading that, not only did Eris posts about addicted inverito babies end, so did news of "Princess Lazy Ass'" baby not making it end also.

Couple of things I need to say. If you have not gone over to Eris FB page, or her Grannies raising their kids babies (something like that) ALSO on FaceBook..... Please do. For the sheer reason that would like to know if anyone agrees with me, or if I am out of the norm.

Baically, afer reading it, the first thing I can think of ad have kept thinking is : Why the hell do you tell the worl about your childrens lives? As messed up as they maybe / are, can't you STOP already????
It has goten to the point thatYOU ~~~~ ERIN,look foolish & extremely isicure. All you care about is geting strangers ( & that is what they are, no matter how well they say they know you.... FROM the Internet ) To FEEL SORRY FOR YOU ! Seriously..... it is so blatent it really is sad now.
I don't know how yu run the house, take care of your kids kids, take care of all of the farm animals AND still make it a Priority to tell complete strangers all of your childrens faults. Has it not sunk in that DP can't do anything for your family (other that your facelift & paying for your meal service) that helps. It has been what, 15 YEARS since he started out on this. And everything in Alexs life has gotten WORSE !!!

On to : Dr. Phoney. He already spent a TON of money on all of you guys, from Tip to Tail so to speak. It was and is all for ratings. I do not believe for a frigging second that he "Cares about Alexandras well being at all !!!!!!! He Pimps out his "People". It is ALWAYS the same old tired "Helping/caring/"Bes t of the Best ~~Ya Right" to help whoever he feels is worthy ofhis so called "Help" In ya All's case his 15 yr. W/ no results "Help"..
Ok, enough for now. Just wondering if anyone else was and is as sickened w/ this whole Group of Clowns as I am...

I think the problem with Alexandra is that Dr Phil and co have only ever treated her symptoms, instead of finding the root problem. All of Alex's therapy and treatment has seemed very superficial, like a band-aid. I understand that she is a drug addict and obviously she needs rehab, but there's a reason why she uses drugs to self-medicate, and that's never really been explored. If you take away the drugs without treating the cause, of course she will go back.

I've been following her family since the beginning and although Alex is very unlikable (complete lack of empathy and responsibility), I continue to be very interested in how this family's life progresses.

Alex needs to get the hell out of Florida and sobering up is only the first step. She needs serious therapy with an excellent psychiatrist and mental health team.
